Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

The Emma hybrid mattress may look like it has a lot going on, but underneath the high-budget marketing it's  surprisingly simple. It’s a combination of two different mattress types that come together to give you the best of both worlds thanks to a clever mix of both reflex foam and micro coils that when paired give you the support necessary to prove adequate tension for side sleepers and back sleepers alike.

The Ultra-breathable Airgocell® memory foam sits above this hybrid layer and proves perfect for anyone who experiences pressure points when they sleep or who moves between different sleep positions during their rest time. You see, the Emma hybrid mattress has deeper memory foam than standard which helps relieve tension in your joints and creates a floating feeling as you sleep that works really well. What's more, since the Airgocell is more breathable than traditional memory foam, it ends up being far more breathable which in turn removes one of the core pitfalls of traditional memory foam and creates an ideal all-season mattress that will allow you to sleep deeper and for longer.

The Emma hybrid mattress is a medium tension mattress that’s built for all types of sleepers but will typically work best for side sleepers and those without back pain. 

Feel and Softness

As mentioned above, the Emma hybrid mattress is a medium-firm hybrid that’s designed to give you the balance of a solid high quality mattress but with a medium feel that offers a little bit of sinkage that proves ideal for all sleepers of average weight and build. The Emma hybrid mattress isn’t a very soft mattress, but it also doesn’t have a very firm feel, either and will prove suitable for people who like to switch things up when it comes to their sleeping position. 

Reviews for the Emma Hybrid Mattress are consistently high-performing and market leading, with a 200 night trial it's easy to see why as those that don't love it have zero risk associated to the purchase and can simply have the mattress collected free of charge for a easy and painless refund. Those that do keep the mattress (ratio looks to be around 92%), are particularly happy with reviews commenting on the products high performance and good comfort levels while others comment on the cooling nights sleep and ability to sleep for longer. With a 10 year guarantee on-top as a final sweetener, there's little reason to look elsewhere.

How does it feel?

Firmness of The Emma Hybrid Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.

Reasons to Buy

Sleeps cool - more breathability is always a good thing and this hybrid mattress ticks all the right boxes.

The hybrid combination works well in this configuration.

Plenty of deep and luxurious memory foam which has been adapted for increased airflow.

Huge guarantee that is market leading.

Reasons to Avoid

One tension only available may disappoint those looking for some flexibility in the support feeling of the "one-size-fits-all" approach that Emma takes with the industry.

Some reports that the thick layer of memory foam can restrict movement slightly for those that toss and turn a lot.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.


*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.


  • Breathability
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.


  • Initial Odour
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

Brand Rating

  • Overall Brand Rating
  • This is based on community driven customer reviews tied to product reviews and grouped together at a brand level to produce a score.

What Makes The Emma Hybrid Mattress Great?

A Which Best Buy for 2021

Multiple layers of plush memory foam

Memory foam is one of the most desirable and in demand comfort layers around, outperforming others when it comes to sheer desire. This foam was first developed with NASA and was first used for commercial applications shortly after. The soft and body moulding properties of this layer makes it very appealing to those looking for a weightless nights sleep. Be aware however that temperature regulation continues to be an issue with this layer, though there has been improvement in recent years with additional cooling solutions offered through select ranges.

Innovative steel micro-coil springs bring you the support you need

A hybrid mattress that is the best of both worlds

Soothing pressure relief

There's a "goldilocks" effect that can see certain materials all work together hand-in-hand to result in pressure relief. The core contribute to this is often found in the type of support layer which is then paired with a deep and soft comfort layer giving comfort and pressure relief at the same time.

Regulates temperature and is inherently breathable

Breathable mattresses are designed to allow air to flow freely through the material, helping to regulate body temperature and prevent excessive sweating. This can lead to a more comfortable, cooler night's sleep - perfect for those who tend to get hot and bothered during the night.

Award-winning UltraDry cover

Removable and washable cover

Removable covers help keep things fresh. The average person keeps their mattress for around 7 to 8 years and over time that can make your mattress a fairly unhygienic place to be. Thanks to the removable cover, you can sleep easy knowing that your mattress and your health, are protected.

Single-sided - rotate every three months

Single sided mattresses typically offer great value at a slightly lower price point than their double sided alternatives. The benefit for you is that you won't need to flip your mattress although you will still need to rotate in line with manufacturer guidelines. 

Ideal for all sleeping positions

No motion transfer

Medium firmness - cosy and supportive!

Medium tension mattresses are suitable for the vast majority of people as they are not too soft, nor too firm. This firmness can offer a good amount of back and neck support while still being soft enough to prove suitable for side sleepers. The key benefit for this type of layer is that it's sort of a "one size fits all" approach that gives your body the contouring and support necessary while remaining soft and squishy.

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Memory Foam

memory foam is one of the most well known materials used in the upper layer of mattresses. Memory foam basically contours to your entire body with moulding properties. Designed by NASA, this material rebounds to your touch and feels like you are floating on a cloud. Memory foam does not necesserily mean soft either, you can still have firm mattresses for those that want them with a bit of memory foam.


Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Removable cover

Removable covers are great. We don't typically replace mattresses for 7-8 years. That's a lot of body fluids and protectors and sheets can only do so much. To that end getting that extra layer of cleanliness goes a huge way toward ensuring you get longevity out of your product.

Washable cover

Keep your mattress fresh and hygienic with a removable washable cover. Prevent moisture from building up over time. Wash your mattress cover at least once a year to remove all bacteria, dust-mites and odours and alleviate allergies by discouraging future dust mites and bed bugs from nesting.


Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.


A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the mattress.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team
